Shock & Awe! Review by Piggybladder

I thought I was doing alright sharpening with 1000/5000 waterstones followed by honing and polishing on 3 micron and 1 micron lapping film, and I was, until I got stuck into planing some very old & dry recycled mahogany. Fed up re-sharpening every 10 mins, even more fed up with the time and mess of flattening stones after each sharpening I thought it was time to try full on scary sharpening with this glass plate and a sample pack of lapping and micro films. So I went at it alternating one left, one right stroke on my cambered irons on each of the 40, 30, 15, 9, 5, 3, 1 & .3 micron films. 16 strokes in all (way more than necessary) but the result is simply stunning. I'm absolutely shocked. At least 2 levels higher than my old regime. I was shaving sharp before but this is way beyond that. Sooo quick and clean. I'm sure the main difference is down to the flatness of this glass plate. And the mirror finish off the additional 0.3 micron film has to be seen to be believed. I didn't think it would be much of an improvement over the 1 micron but it really is. Fair to say I'm a convert to scary now and am looking forward to finessing my sharpening/honing/polishing regime to somewhere between 4 & 8 strokes. From past experience I reckon on eking out a strip of lapping film for 6 months. So I reckon a single whole sheet of film cut into 4 strips would probably last me 2 years. So for me, a moderately heavy diy'er/hobbyist/aspiring cabinet maker I don't think the cost of films is as great an issue as is often reported about scary sharpening. (Posted on 08/11/2017)

This is a really good-sized lapping plate, with good weight. Nice price too, well packed and quick delivery.
